Wrestling/boxing or UFC Manager game?

31 posts in this topic

I dont know if this has been asked or if this is the right place. But will SI ever create a fighting manager game for boxing, ufc or wrestling. I think it would great as there are alot of fans out there for these sports and they could bring in these people to buy such game.

Have you ever played WMMA 3?

It's text based so not everyone's sort of game but I find it amazingly addictive.

I am sure boxing has been mentioned on here before but I doubt SI will do a game outside of a football one.

There was a thread a couple weeks ago about this: Greydog Software makes the WMMA game mentioned here, as well as a wrestling management sim. You might check them out- I haven't played yet, but those I have talked to give their games high recommendations.

WMMA 3 is very addictive, quite a few mods available for it as well. Should at least try out the demo for it.

The ex SIers OOTP offer a boxing sim on their website www.ootpdevelopments.com

Yes, Title Bout, which was based on the old Avalon Hill box game. The problem I've had with it though is that isn't really a management sim like FM or the Greydog games in that there is no game world aspect to it that changes, grows, etc. Unless they've done something completely different with it in past year.

Make sure you have latest patch installed, fixes the dog attack bug where your postman was out for 6 months every time.

I love it played as UFC from 1993 to 2017 and still going. One of the few games that compares to FM for addictiveness especially historical mods.

Guessing you're using the Dawn of MMA mod? Very good mod, frustrating seeing regens having the same pics as some UFC stars though

I manually assign pictures from the default database to good fighters when I use that mod. I also use a picture pack with no names on the face picture not as annoying that way.

I don't actually mind the names with the face, and I think I did do that in my save or perhaps just left them with a blank image :D

As for wrestling, EWR (Extreme Warfare Revenge) and TEW (Total Extreme Wrestling) are the two main ones for that. In EWR you do a fair amount less but in TEW it's a lot more in depth.

EWR was made by Adam Ryland just like TEW was. It was a free much simpler version of TEW made years and years before. I think there's more chance of another TEW before another WMMA, greydogsoftware are also currently making a pro basketball game. Obviously there won't be real players in it until someone releases a mod.

TEW has incredible depth. It is the Football Manager of the wrestling world.

WWE is a completely different type of game, it's not really a simulator. TEW is a wrestling simulator and is not like WWE.

OOTP claim that a boxing manager style game is in the works with ex-SI staffer Paul Norman doing some of the work. Problem is they have been saying this for a number of years now. Most of the their time seems to be spent on their baseball manager games which bring in the most money, so you can't really blame them.

We tried with both baseball and hockey, both games unfortunately due to various reasons were not sustainable at the levels we'd hope to achieve.

doubt it, why would anyone want to manage a Boxer?

In a mixed martial arts game you would be a company and in charge of loads of fighters and would book the matches. In a boxing one you would more than likely play the role of a promoter and hire several fighters and arrange a boxing event for them to all fight each other at.

^^this to answer every single idea about another game than FM.

EHM, OOTP, and FML all failed when SI developed these games, so let's just have SI stick with FM...

But if OOTP Hockey sells well, would SI consider reviving the EHM series? I still play EHM07 every now and then. It's so outdated though... :(

TEW is amazing it is literally the FM of the wrestling world. If you're into your wrestling then I recommend buying it. It's very in-depth.

You can buy from here: < snip>

C'mon , guys- this is a forum for discussing FM not advertising other games. Si have said before that their full attention will be on FM so it is very unlikely that any other managemnet sim will be considered.
